Iggy Pop has been recording with mystery collaborators
While promoting his album Post Pop Depression earlier this year, Iggy Pop was adamant that the collection would be his last — at least for the foreseeable future. "This is a really bloody good, motherf—ing album," he said to EW about the Josh Homme-produced set. "I'm not in a hurry to think about any other goddamned album. I like this album. So, don't make me make any other f—ing albums!"
When EW met with Pop and director Jim Jarmusch last week to talk about the latter's just-released Stooges documentary Gimme Danger, the singer seemed no keener on putting together another album. But Pop did reveal that he has sung on a number new tracks, albeit not for any forthcoming Iggy release.
"I've made five recordings since then," he said, referring to our previous conversation. "But they were all recordings not where I'm about, ‘Hey, I've got something to say!' No, it was just, people called me up and said, ‘Do you want to do a vocal with me, about this, under this circumstance?' More like guesting. I would prefer to do that for a while. You know, there are people I like. I like the people I've recorded with — I can't tell you who they are! — very much."
